Photographer's Note

The Alexandre III Bridge is one of the most beautifully decorated bridges in Paris.
This bridge is named after Tsar Alexandre III, father of Nicolas II in 1896, reflecting the special relationship between France and Russia. The bridge was completed in 2 years and inaugurated during the universal exposition of 1900, the architecture, exuberant feature are of the decorative art. At the each end of the bridge, there are two pairs of 17 m flanking socles, which provide stabilizing counterweight for the arch. The photographed socle is featuring golden Pegasus at the top. The day I was there sky was exceptionally blue making the gilded Pegasus stands out. Over the blue sky, there was the moon creating a picturesque relationship with the sculpture. It is very rare for me to use a telephoto lens, but this day I went out with it. It turned out quite practical for taking this simple photo.
